QPR reveal big financial losses

Queens Park Rangers' debt has rocketed to 177 million pounds after the club lost 65.4 million pounds last season, when they were relegated from the Premier League.

Tony Fernandes completed his takeover of QPR in 2011.

Loans from QPR's owners totalling 72.7 million pounds, plus a short-term bank loan of 15 million pounds, have seen the club's debts spiral from 91 million pounds to 177 million pounds in the space of 12 months.

Wages rose from 58.4 million pounds in the 2011-12 campaign to 78 million pounds last season.

Even more worrying, the club's overall turnover was only 60.6 million pounds -- most of that coming from Premier League TV money -- which does not even cover their wage bill.

The figures mean that QPR could find themselves facing a large fine and a transfer embargo under the Football League's financial fair play rules, unless the club wins promotion back to the Premier League.

The figures are revealed in the annual accounts of QPR Holdings Ltd, which have been lodged at Companies House.

QPR chairman Tony Fernandes said in a statement in the accounts: “Clearly in 2012-13 the club did not meet its performance targets and was relegated from the Premier League.

“A critical driver of any club's value is its presence in the Premier League, and the club is focused on regaining its Premier League status as quickly as possible.

“The financial results reflect the club's focus on trying to achieve on-pitch success.”
